Sporting Directors Report
News from Wakefield Park Raceway is that Goulburn Mulwaree council have approved the development application submitted by WPR with conditions that are to commence in 2022 thence annually. Conditions to be imposed will reduce the number of days they are permitted to operate at a maximum of 95 dba from 50, to 40 in 2023 & 30 in 2024 with no provision for any days that exceed 95 dba.
These conditions will eliminate current trucks & super bikes etc ( consider some of Australia’s best super bike riders have come out of the Goulburn area & thus have honed their skills at Wakefield Park).
This decision will have a devastating impact on WPR operations & on going viability.
Wakefield Park Raceway has filed an appeal in the Land & Environment Court of NSW against the Goulburn Mulwaree council’s deci-sion.
Let’s hope they are successful in their appeal.
Hopefully we don’t see what I call the home of grassroots Motorsport close to disappear and we lose yet another great Motorsport venue.
Wakefield Park Raceway provides grassroots Motorsport at an affordable price & it is obvious that Wakefield Park management are com-mitted to providing the best possible experience for Motorsport at all levels.
Let’s support them all the way .
Stay safe, stay healthy.
Remember drive them don’t hide them. Enjoy your MG.
